Adcole introduces inspection machine featuring optical and tactile measuring
MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Adcole Corporation has launched the 1000-Zygo Surface Finish Inspection Gage to measure roughness, waviness, and lay of camshafts, crankshafts and other precision machined components. The new gage features both optical and tactile measuring heads, greatly expanding upon the inspection capabilities of ordinary profilometers, and providing precise inspection of crankshaft and camshaft surface geometries that were previously unobtainable. In addition to lobes, journals, and pins, it is now possible to assess sliding camshaft features such as camtrack sidewalls and bottom grooves. There is even potential to measure the deep rolled fillets on crankshafts.
